. the woman at center of the firestorm facing more questions. today u.n. ambassador to the u.s. susan rice met with republican senators who harshly criticized her initial ex-plan nation about the attack that killed four americans including ambassador chris stevens. what senator lindsey graham said after the meeting. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before, that the 16th september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think, does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> dana bash following developments on capitol hill. before susan rice went before these republicans, senators, they seemed to be backing away from criticizing her. now it looks like in speaking with them, this is backfired. can you tell us what happened? >> reporter: that's right. i was told by a source familiar with this meeting that the reason why the senators backed off public comments, softened them, they did, susan rice requested a meeting and felt that was the most appropriate thing to do not keep pounding her be

the past few days on capitol hill were a critical diplomatic mission for u.n. ambassador susan rice. arguably the most important domestic diplomacy of her career perhaps. after two meetings over two days with these five key republican senators, the gop, it seemed, were more unified against her in their opinion of ms. rice. >> i continue to be troubled. >> we are significantly troubled. >> i want to say that i'm more troubled today. >> i'm more disturbed now than i was before. >> the whole issue of benghazi has been to me a tawdry affair. >> it would be an understatement at this point to say ms. rice has become a lightning rod for republican criticism and with it more political obstacles that could be in the way of any sort of nod she might get towards becoming secretary of state. that's if the ambassador is even nominated. no one might understand the challenges of being the u.s. ambassador to the united nations more than the man who was actually held that role, governor bill richardson, formerly of new mexico, served as the u.n. ambassador under president clinton. thank you, governo

status here, ashleigh? >> so, our man at the u.n. is a woman at the u.n. and it's susan rice who has been big in the news lately with the controversy over what happened in benghazi but this was something different and she was very passionate when she spoke after that vote. characterize it for me. tell me what she said and why? >> yes. i've heard ambassador rice speak for four years here, and i guess i could just sense this was a more powerful and very stern in tone, though, she has spoken out, believe me, on libya, syria, and other things. she doesn't pull any punches, but she was the first to speak in reply to this historic vote from the u.s. chair inside the general assembly and she said, look, pushing a green button inside the general assembly hall is not going to achieve middle east peace, this resolution really does not create a reality of a state. there is no state for the palestinians on the ground. it's counterproductive, there will be more obstacles. i'm sure shue knew that many people would be watching not just in the middle east but also on capitol hill where she will face pote
